Product Description

About the Author

As a prolific reader and ex-history teacher, Anne O’Brien has been lucky to fulfil her ambition to write historical romances. Her first success was a 400 word love story about a garden for Mills & Boon – an auspicious start! Anne lives with her husband in an eighteenth-century cottage. It is a place that gives her much inspiration and many sources for her writing. Anne often makes time to visit old houses, gardens and priories to absorb atmosphere for her novels.

I love history books and always found that when I was at School the books quite boring and they didn't leave me feeling I had learnt anything about the era or people around at the time. This is alongside Philippa Gregory's books an excellent way to read history and absorb what being a part of the era was about.. I would certainly recommend this book to history buffs and those studying this era.. Lots of background knowledge goes a long way..

This was the first book I read from the author Anne O Brien and I really liked it. It is the story of a widow who was married to a man she loathed, being offered a marriage of convenience to as very attractive man who wants to consolidate his inheritance. Later, the castle they inherit is besieged by Royalists with all kinds of consequences. It is a touching love story. The heroine, despite the fact she has been so unhappy is brave and her husband is really quite sexy even though they have a slow start to their romance. What starts as a marriage of convenience does not end that way. It's really well written and I enjoyed the story. Lots of interesting touches too. I can recommend this because I really enjoyed it.

This book was ok but not fantastic. I prefer the historical books where the romance is about something real rather than this which appears to be more about being a romance novel that happens to be set in the past.

More 'Mills and Boon' than historical novel. I was bored by the constant into bed, pages of fumble around, then fall out with each other. What little history there was, was incidental to the main theme of both character's ' what can we fall out about now'. The heroine is naïve and the hero arrogant and bad tempered. Not a book for me, sorry I wasted my money.

I did enjoy this book. The story telling was good, and I could identify the historical period and facts of events, albeit with authors licence to involve the characters, and the general story line. Always wanted to pick it up and bury myself in the ongoing saga of the characters.

Another captivating romantic, story set in the time of the English civil war. Tells of the developing romance between a Lord and his Lady with a backdrop of how it was to be under siege inside an English castle. Satisfying and entertaining.

This is the second Anne O'Brien book I have read recently and thank you Amazon for recommending them to me. This is a delightful and absorbing novel. I do not usually class books as 'could not put down' but I found I was picking it up at the most unlikely times of the day and really did not want it to come to an end. I am now waiting eagerly for Anne's next novel.
